I have been charmed by Bill Condon’s approach to the task of directing both parts of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. Condon started the treacherous journey of filming two films back to back with a gracious note to fans. He has updated along the way, including another note to gush over his impressive crew and a feathery photo from the set this Thanksgiving.
Well, another holiday, another image: Condon has tweeted a photo of the Swan household decorated for Christmas. Those familiar with the books know that this very well may be an early look at Breaking Dawn Part 2. Hit the jump to see the full image.
Condon included the following note with the tweet:
“Happy holidays from the Swan home to yours.” – Bill
I love this guy. What a great gift for the fans.
Breaking Dawn will be broken into two parts: Part I hits theaters on November 18th, 2011, Part II drops a year later on November 16th, 2012.
Here’s the synopsis for Stephenie Meyer’s book:
When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved?
To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife have led her to the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or to pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fates of two tribes hangs.
Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating, and unfathomable, consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella’s life–first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse–seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed… forever?
The astonishing, breathlessly anticipated conclusion to the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions. [Amazon]
